Southlake Police Warn Public Of ‘Convincing’ Cashier’s Check Scam

SOUTHLAKE (CBSDFW.COM) — Southlake police are warning the public of a new cashier’s check scam, of which they say is “very convincing.”

Recipients of these cashier’s checks are advised to scratch off the back of the cards and send them a photo, along with other personal information. But it is in fact a scam, and to throw the checks away.
